ESP artists receive IMRA Award

Posted: November 19, 2019


East St. Paul artists receive IMRA Award

 
 
L to R:  Coun. Charles Posthumus, award winners Jo Smoley, Noni Kling and
Judy Sutton, and Couns. Carla Devlin and Brian Duval
 

Three East St. Paul artists - Judy Suton, Noni Kling and Jo Smoley - received the Interlake Municipal Recreation Association's Recreation Builders Award at the annual banquet held in East St. Paul on October 25.
 
Sutton and Kling suggested a project in 2016 - the RM's Centennial year - to hang local artwork in the municipal office.  The idea was to promote local artists and give them an opportunity to showcase their talent.
 
Council members approved what they thought was a fantastic idea and invested in a professional grade art hanging system.
 
Every month since January 2016 Sutton has been coordinating groups of artists to bring in their art for display.  The program has been well received by the arts community and the community in general.
 
The art brings life to the municipal office and is a real conversation piece for those who visit and now can better appreciate the talent that resides within our community.
 
The art group also meets once a week to work on their crafts in the 55-plus centre.
